DIY | Feather Snowballs

Here's the last Christmas Week Tutorial. It has been such a fun week, and I just love all the christmas decorations in my home!

I hope that you have enjoyed this christmas DIYweek as much as I have, and please let me know if you have any more christmas DIY wishes!

Today I am sharing a very easy 2-minute DIY with you, to create that pretty and fast last-minute christmas decoration:

Just take an empty snowball, a couple of feathers in the color you like. And just place the feathers inside the snowball. Use a pretty ribbon to hang the snowball in your christmas tree!

All done!


DIY | Wooden Christmas Tree

I just love christmas decorations and especially the big tree to hang them in! I unfortunately don't really have the space for a big tree, and my boyfriend and cats aren't really sharing my love for the big green tree :)

So I decided to build a more modern looking tree to hang my decorations and ornaments in and keep everybody happy. It was actually really easy to make and it looks pretty cute, being small with big ornaments hanging from it! 

1. Collect some branches ( I actually bought mine for 2 euros at Action, a Dutch store)
2. Place the branches on the floor to see what it will look like. Mark the pieces that need to be made smaller.
3. Use a handsaw to shorten the branches that are to long.
4. Use a drill to insert screws to connect the branches with the tall branch in the middle. (or if you prefer, you can use nails and a hammer)

All done! Let's go decorate!


DIY | Felt Christmas Ornament

I just love felt! It's such an easy material and it just seems to match with everything!
That's why I just couldn't have a Christmas DIY Week without some cute felt ornaments :)

Here's how:

1. Download the Free Printable template to get the shapes in the right sizes.
Print the printables and cut the shapes out.

2. Trace the shapes onto the fabric and cut them out. (make sure that you cut every shape twice for the front and the back).
Take a piece of ribbon and place it double on top of the ornament between the two layers.

3. Start stitching the two pieces fabric together using the 'blanket stitch'. 

4. When you're almost finished stitching the two pieces together, fill the inside with some soft filling.
Continue stitching the ornament until you made the full circle.

All done!
